Marine Arragain

A true lover of abstract expressionists, Marine shares their idea that art is a perpetual exploration of one’s identity, a constant journey, rejuvenated time and again by the unconscious mind.

Her paintings are the reflection of an eclectic set of fascinations: the expressive palette of American Moderns, the search for a long-lost ancestral Asia, and, of course, Nature: both monumental and serene. Her art is an invitation to fervor and contemplation.

With Marine, duality and opposites are but two faces of the same coin: silence responds to violence, appeasement to vertigo, dance and quietude to chaos. Choosing to paint with her canvases directly on the floor, using industrial tools and natural pigments, she explores the forces and movements created by the overlapping layers of paint and the conversation between colors.

In the words of the poet Paul Eluard, Marine invites us all to “see the world as I am, not as it is”.
